This takes the magic circle firm’s half year turnover to £633m - almost £100m up on this time last year when the figure stood at £536m.
Simon Davies, managing partner elect, said that the firm has had a strong start to the year and the revenue increase reflects another powerful performance across Linklaters.
“It is too early to forecast the long-term effect on our business of the so-called credit crunch,” added Davies. “Nevertheless, our people have responded tremendously well to the challenge of anticipating and meeting the complex demands of our clients.”
The magic circle firm’s results come as it saw its full-year turnover for the 2006-07 period rise by 20 per cent to £1.12bn, securing its position as Britain’s second largest firm in terms of turnover after Clifford Chance.
